I think that the range drop off was already tested on The Engine's Cannae Take It! Here's a link. As far as I know, the range drop off has not been changed. That was the reason I tried to stay under 1 KM because after 1 KM beam damage starts to drop off (with cannons it doesn't happen until 2 KM but then it drops off more quickly).

As far as 8 beam boats go, I think it's important for people to be aware of what's really happening. You can still make 8 beams work, it's just you need more power. Since cruisers get so many Eng BO abilities carrying a couple Emergency Power To Weapons isn't that difficult.
