Simply the depth of stacks. Unless its the beginning of a deepstack tournament you're usually going to be playing with a shorter stack or against shorter stacks, alot of 20-50bbs deep situations. Generally, the deeper you are the better the hand you want to have to get allin preflop.
In cash games you'll see people who simply won't get allin without QQ+ AK, or even KK/AA, while in tournaments you need to accumulate chips before the blinds go up or you'll be even shorter. When you get much below 20bbs pushing those AT+, middle pair hands may be the right move.
