How bad is wireless flash with Sony?

I'm sold on mirrorless technology and almost ready do dive into Sony.  But when researching wireless flash systems for Sony, a good chunk of what I've read is horror stories.  First their highest power flash has over-heating problems and wireless issues.  Then I read that the pin design has flaws.  Then I see I can pre-order the new Flashpoint transmitter, but only for Canon and Nikon (the old one has complaints).  Then I read that certain Flashpoint lights for Sony have problems with TTL and HSS (update this, try this setting, still not working then try this, etc.).

On the other hand, Canon and Nikon have a full-gamut of options.  So are these things I'm reading the Sony hotshoe design old and overblown?
