Difference between Ability Conditions

Currently trying to distinguish the difference between these two and why one works for 1 Rule but not the other. Theoretically there the same right?

Conditions are

“Event Ability==Ability(Ability 1)”
and
“Is using ability 1(Event Player)==True”

The first one, Event Ability == Button(Ability 1), is used in damage or healing events. When Ana hits someone with Sleep Dart, this condition becomes true. However, this condition will never be true with Zarya because her Ability 1 is her protection bubble.

The second one, Is Using Ability 1(Event Player) == True, checks if the player is using the ability 1. When Ana is using Sleep Dart (the firing animation) this condition is true. In this case, Zarya’s bubble will trigger this condition while it’s active.
