Discrepancy while using WAS and ON operator

Hi all

Is there a difference between
status = "Needs More Info" 
status WAS "Needs More Info" ON now()

I was under the assumption both should return the same results (current bugs with that particular status) However I noticed they dont in few cases.(when the status are customized) 

Is my assumption incorrect. I also tried using during with future dates. It returned the same discrepancy.

status = "Needs More Info"

is what will get you the issues with the given status now. I don't know how WAS and ON works but seems that is not doing the job for you wink

I wanted to have a query which gives status at any particular day. So I was running WAS "Needs More Info" ON "date" . Where date was being replaced by a script with an appropriate date value. However the result does not match status = Needs More Info which does not make sense. 
It works for some status not for few customized status onle
