My paper just got rejected. Again. The first time it was expected. But for this journal, it wasn't supposed to be. Some of the reviewers' comments are stupid. (for eg. I mention a no-loss algorithm fir a game which, so his/her comment is like what's no-loss? , like are you fucking kidding me, if you don't know that, then why are you a reviewer in the first place)

Anyway now I don't know what to do. I'm looking for more journals but all have so high impact factors and I'm not even sure confident to submit again. Had a good mind to mail the editor in chief but well, I don't think it'd help. What do you guys think?

In the middle of another project, another paper, online courses, now this. I'm just done. I didn't go home as well. It's around four o' clock in the morning here, so noone here is awake.

Can anyone hear me?

    *for a game in which a player can only win lose or draw, so no loss is obviously win/draw, or NOT FUCKING LOSING the game

    What's the deal with explaining no-loss in a short sentence?
    It's a good habit for articles and stuff to explain such words. What might be obvious tp you, is maybe not for your audience. I don't know the review content, but it's easy to complain. Often those people know the audience well and might just want to help you get the most out of it. Or just tell them back you know the audience knows. Review is an opinion after all, you don't have to agree!

    @KDSBest It's indirectly mentioned in multiple places, also there's a shortage of space in a research article so some generic jargon is left unexplained. And this isn't even jargon but basic English.

    I've some great news to share. My first open access journal article (this same paper in the thread) is published at https://doi.org/10.1049/....
    The version of the paper typeset by me is available at https://arxiv.org/abs/2009.11225.
    Thank you for all your support in my research journey. 🌟

    Finally I'd also like to share that all three of my papers sent to RAICS 2020, an IEEE conference, have been accepted. 🔥

    @Nanos thanks to you in particular for the motivation, looking back all your words are good advice 😊
