First review round: 12.4 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

We received 3 reviews(after 12 weeks from submission) - two were clearly positive, even enthusiastic, one was mixed, but mostly negative. The editor decided rejection, even though the critiques from the mostly negative review were relatively easy to address(where they were appropriate) or to refute (where they contained factual errors)
