It seems while trying to improve Moira's Biotic Grasp targeting the team actually made it worse in some cases, as Lead Engineer for Gameplay Systems Tim Ford explains.
A fix will be coming late this week or early next week.

Hi everyone! We wanted to give you a heads up on what’s happening with the targeting on Moira’s Biotic Grasp.
On the PTR, we made a number of improvements to the mechanism that Moira uses to select a target. Now players can more accurately select a target when multiple targets are in the field of view (which resolves issues like this: https://streamable.com/rosvo), and the new system can better discern which target is closest to the player's reticle when multiple targets are valid.
When we made this change, we did our best to make the everything feel as close to her original system as possible, but since the new mechanism uses a different functionality, it didn’t convert perfectly for a number of heroes. Generally, the larger heroes are a little harder to target, while the smaller heroes are much closer to her original behavior. The training bots also need to be adjusted, as they are by far the worst offender in the new system.
Since it wasn't our intention to do anything but improve Moira's targeting, we’re hoping to test a new configuration on the PTR either late this week or early next. Thank you so much for surfacing the issue for us; these reports are incredibly useful for us when it comes to tracking down bugs.
The change also had nothing to do with upcoming Symmetra changes:

The inconsistencies with Moira are unrelated to Symmetra's increased lock on range. That is a separate defect that is also affecting Mercy Rez and a few other AoE abilities. We'll get a fix for those up on PTR next week.
Again, thank you all for your help. Hopefully a thorough dose of tryptophan over the weekend will improve our math skills.
And, just to keep everything Moira updated, she will be unlocking in competitive mode today, Thursday 23rd, at 11AM PST.

The much anticipated map, that was first shown at BlizzCon, is now available on the Public Test Realm!
Most Blizzard fans have dreamed of a theme park dedicated to our beloved games. Now, this theme park will be partly realised into Overwatch! The developers poured all their creativity into celebrating World of Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm in... Overwatch. Thus, the new hybrid map, Blizzard World, was presented at BlizzCon:
Now, you can finally try Blizzard World out on the PTR. Feel free to go nuts and share your experience on the comments below! PTR Patch 1.18 also contains various bug fixes. Here are the patch notes:
New Hybrid Map: Blizzard World
An amusement park celebrating the universes of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo, Blizzard World is a brand-new hybrid Assault/Escort map. Charge the gates of Stormwind, sneak through the Nexus Experience, and guide the payload through areas filled with high ground, flanking routes, and environmental hazards. Grab some Blizzard-inspired snacks at the concession stand along the way! GENERAL

Who We Are
Tequila Sundown is a new raid team forming within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're building a "positively determined" progression team that will maintain a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!
A Team Within a Community
Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.
We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.
Our mandatory raids are:
Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
We will also establish an optional Sunday night raid to clear the difficulty below our current progression, ie, Normal if we're progressing on Heroic, Heroic if we're progressing on Mythic.
DPS: All specs welcome, ranged and melee.
Healers: Will consider all, but bonus points if you're a druid or priest.
Tank: no current needs.
The Nitty Gritty
If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we're going to operate as a raid team.
