If your chainline was fine with 7S it will be fine with 8S. Just don't try using that first cog with the big ring.

I mostly agree with this, but terrible chainline can definitely be a deal breaker. I had a beater once setup so bad that I literally could not use the big ring with the first two or three cogs. The chain would fall off the ring if I tried. That's what really bad chainline can do.
