When you're too strong, you don't need to worry about strategy.
Every game has strategy, not just strategy games. And when strategy comes along, Not all gamers appreciate it. Lots of gamers experienced this: That One Boss and That One Level seemed so unbeatable no matter how hard you try, and the author make things go worse by keep reminding them at the level loading screen that it's all gamer's fault as they used a wrong strategy. Strategy? That is ruining your fun now. So, either your typical Whoring technique is crushed by some level entirely, or it's a Guide Dang It as the boss requires a specific Tech Tree so distinct from the one you dumped all skill points and money on (and of course, no refunds), or the enemy was at the top of the elemental food chain which is effective against all troops on your hand. And the game design is actually not bad other than that. Some people go rage-quitting. Some decided to overcome this. These gamers take time to get stronger... Now Screw the Strategy, I'm so Strong! Note that this can be achieved by many ways: Whoring (like using Zerg Rush to finish all levels easily), Level Grinding (10 more sets of skill points, everything solved. May involve One Stat To Rule Them All), or just using some pure Game Breaker (Like a Disc One Nuke). Some may even use cheats to do this. As this is a trope, expect smart players to deliberately invoke this to their adventage. This does not happen only in games, however - there have been battles in Real Life where an army defeated another one with many times the strength (and comparable weapons). This doesn't mean they can always win though. See also The Law Of Diminishing Defensive Effort, and Might Makes Right when you replace "Right" with "Author's intended strategy". Compare Attack Attack Attack. Compare Unskilled But Strong, where in this trope a win is guarenteed no matter what strategy you've chosen. Also compare Scissors Cuts Rock, where you need not to defy the strategies in this trope, since you just don't care. If you end up losing instead, you can become Leeroy Jenkins.
