Well, it depends what you mean by "use of tropes".
Tropes aren't meant to be something you consciously use, they're a list of common things that authors put in works either because people like them or because they're just necessary for the story to work. It's ridiculous to say "don't use tropes", because every story ever has, from ancient mythology to the present day. Having said that, anyone who looks at TV Tropes and says "hey, let's design my character around that trope" is an idiot, because that's not how it's meant to work at all. Tropes are meant to emerge organically as a result of writing the story, not be something you put in artificially so you can say "hey, this character is a Tsundere" or whatever.
