Overwatch released a new patch to the PTR on Friday, March 8, which includes a number of bug fixes and once again changes the look of Baptiste’s Amplification Matrix ultimate ability.
Baptiste is the newest hero to Overwatch, and the PTR's latest change will be the third version of his ultimate ability given to players to try out.
The update doesn’t affect any of the abilities stats, but it does change its appearance to make it stand out more for players.
Amplification Matrix was a bit too transparent and looked too much like a shield for some players, so Blizzard changed the look of the ability on Friday, March 1.
Now, based on player feedback from just the past week, it looks like Blizzard has changed the appearance of the ability once again.
The latest incarnation of the ability gives it a distinct green/blue border that should make it stand out from other abilities, and differentiate it from things like Reinhard or Symmetra’s shield.
Besides the new look for Baptiste’s ult, Brigitte also had a bug fixed that prevented her shields from recharging.
The bug made it so that Brigitte players on the PTR had to completely switch heroes in order to recharge the shield, not exactly an efficient way of doing things.
Blizzard certainly has been on a tear with adding updates to the PTR recently, which is a good thing for players, exactly when the updates will make it into the live game however, remains to be seen.

Fixed a bug where, when a character boosted by Mercy landed a shot, Mercy didn’t receive audio or visual cues
