Pretty much the only reason to use beams in MVAM is for spam management. I switched to beams since most other members in my fleet can't handle carrier spam in PvP. I did notice a small damage drop compared to using DHCs, but not by much. Perhaps the nicest benefit is you can get alot of damage from broadsides, so you aren't always trying to line up the target for your cannons.
If you PvP using MVAM with beams and FAW, the enemy will love using Scramble Sensors on you.
