While you could argue that Zenyatta's a better counterpart right now, this isn't entirely the case. Brigitte's burst onto the competitive scene since her launch and she's a common sight in many players' matches. There's a lot more to life as a Support Hero in Overwatch than simply keeping your team alive, and we think the developers at Blizzard have done a pretty amazing job of providing an interesting mix of Support characters in the game. She's less of a healer, and more of an off-tank who provides some additional frontline presence, as well as the ability to armour up her allies. Lucio's a jack of all trades, but a master of none. Zenyatta has always enjoyed popularity in both the casual and competitive play scenes thanks to his versatility. On top of all this, she synergises well with heroes like Reinhardt and Zarya who're in the meta currently and can switch from defensive to offensive in the blink of an eye.

Recent changes on the PTR are nerfing her damage dealing capabilities, and buffing her healing potential.

Zenyatta has some extremely powerful buffing and debuffing abilities, and his Ultimate ability is incredible for preventing team wipes and keeping the pace of the game moving forwards. Oh, and we should point out that although Lucio's ranked lowest, this doesn't mean he's weak by any means.
