I don't mind subscriptions:
- The up front cost is reduced, and for most products I buy that way it takes several years for the subscription to become more expensive; often there are major updates within that timeframe that would mean an additional up front payment, and if I don't need the subscription for the whole time I end up saving money.
- The regular income can be beneficial to Scirra, which then also benefits me because they can keep doing awesome stuff.

Neither.
It doesnt look like it improves enough for me to justify wanting or NEEDING it. Ill hold my tongue until it is released and I can actually see and try out whats new, or isnt.

that said, its a buy from me. Or im not using it. Ill use unity,unreal or gamemaker before I need to subscribe.

It is funny to discuss Subscription or Buy vote without knowing what we are paying for! What is the Construct 3 Free features and what is the Construct 3 Paid features, anyway ill spare my 2 cents on these, I'm willing to subscribe if they have any of these features or variations otherwise paid.
1. They have a cloud based export similar to cocoon.io https://cocoon.io/pricing @cocoonjs at least to their silver price point offer or of similar feature
2. or/ They have a decent sound effects / music asset library ready for use
3. or/ They have a kick ass templates for various games with decent level design
4. or/ Multiplayer service platform similar to unity https://unity3d.com/services/multiplayer
5. or/ <what features do you what to put price into> https://store.unity.com/
sleep is only for the weak!

Buy.

I really liked the idea of personal and business licenses that you had for a lifetime, with constant updates being made.

I can sort of understand the yearly subscription's purpose (more income for Scirra), but as a hobby gamedev who doesn't really make bank from their own projects and not much income to dispose, it seems like an extra hurdle compared to a one-time fee.

BUY/(pay once for life time)

Keep personal/business licenses, get lifetime security/bug fixes for program until end of life (6 years?) and release a "new" version of Construct (3, 4, 5..) every 2/3/4 years that you have to pay* to "upgrade" to/keep getting "feature updates" perhaps.

*At discount for existing owners
