How to get better at League of Legends?

This is a bit of a hard question. It mostly depends on your rank and what you could do with improving. This being said, no matter what rank you are, you could always put a little more effort into working together with your team. Being able to communicate plans and work together is the main difference between a win or a loss. You could be playing incredibly well but one lane suffering too many casualties can bring the entire game down.

As well as this, try and get good with a few different heroes and playstyles. Don't lock yourself into one unmovable style. If you and your teammates both have similar styles, one of you may want to change around to really get the most out of your character's builds. If you can get a few friends who are willing to play competitively, this will significantly help you rank up. Make sure to communicate frequently with them and really work together where you can. Adapt to situations where they come in and try not to be too rigid about your style. Practice this and you should be able to see some good results.
