I have searched around for alternatives just to see what is available, but I can hardly find anything.

I've read in many articles that web MVC is never true MVC for some reasons too technical for me to really grasp. And it is sometimes suggested to look for something else, but what are the something elses, what are the other architecture types? Where can i read more about it? Can someone provide more details about what is available out there?

By the way, I already read about the 3 tiers architectures, which in my opinion is pretty similar, unless proven otherwise.

What else is there?

An (already a bit older) blog post from Larry Garfield is the best ressource I know about this topic:
