Does Positive EV/Equity plays really matter in Tourneys in the Long Run?

I understand you always want the odds in your favor. I get how in cash games in the long run if you get your money in good you might lose in the short term but all those edges add up over time and in long run you will profit just like a casino does with their edge.

But in tourneys you need to avoid getting knocked out. So you could go all in 10 times as a 80-20 favorite, you win the first 8 but lose the last 2 to bigger stacks and your out. You did great getting your money in good and put your self in a good spot but I don't see how that 80% edge you had carries over to other tourneys. Since its not like a cash game. In many videos the pros say your making the correct long term play but once your out of the tourney I don't think any of the profitable moves you made matter for the long term. Since a tournament is a different beast than a cash game.

I know I must be looking at this wrong so I hope someone can clarify what I'm missing!

Thanks!
