If you had just started/ ready to start solo Q, I heavily recommend you to get good with AP carries and jungler.

The reason behind this is because these two roles had most affect to all lanes during the early and mid game, and generally speaking, below 1400s, people will usually surrender at 20 if you have a huge lead.

Support is usually unneeded til 1400s+, and the AD carries start becoming really important after 1500s+.

Finally, never start ranked before you have 2 rune pages ready, I don't recommend you to start ranked if your normal game winning % is below 50% as well

You definitely need at least 51% winning % in normal game to start ranked, otherwise, I will just wait for another ELO hell thread and I don't want to spend the time to explain about the thing

I am just trying to save you and my time.

Rule number 1: Map awareness
Rule Number 2: Know your champion, know your role for the team.
Rule number 3: Stay Positive!

P.S.

Ken gives great advice, it's generally a good idea to listen to him.

Standard setup will be armor pen mark, armor seal, mr/lvl for AD carry, magic pen mark, mana regen seal, flat MR glyphs for basic AP carry

Of course, there will be some more specific page depend on your champion and the enemy champion...but the standard page is good on most champions.

-Buy a ward every time you go back and have a free slot and the extra gold. Every time. Do it.
-The jungler can't gank if you have pushed your lane - don't autoattack.
-Conversely, if you're jungling, don't try to gank a pushed lane, no matter how much your teammates ***** about you ganking.
-If you wipe your enemies out of your lane, and still have hp, feel free to gank another lane if feasible. You don't always want to push early on but the advantage a team gets from everyone ganking everywhere when possible is huge.
-Communicate.
-If the enemy team has a jungler that requires blue (skarner for instance), take his blue whenever possible. Work with your team, ping for help.
-You have 6 item slots. 4 Attack/2 Defensive generally makes more sense then 6 Attack.
-Synergy. Aim for it, with both items and team mates.
-Don't build offensive items on a melee if you aren't winning. If you're too squishy/getting focused, get defensive items. Your stats and skills will scale with levels for the most part on these characters so building defensive you can generally still be a threat.
-Think about what scaling stats your character has. Early game, you don't need to build items in that stat. For instance, Master Yi gets +attack damage from his E, so he can just build attack speed and crit chance.
-Ward
-Know at least one character in each role. I.E. Tank, support, ad carry, melee tanky dps, ap carry, jungler, solo top. Play whatever the team needs.
-Try out new heroes/heroes you haven't played in normals constantly so you know what every champ does intimately. Free week rocks.
-Elixirs can be a good, cheap stat boost, especially for that elusive CDR.
-Call MIAs. But watch your minimap. You shouldn't need MIAs.
-Communicate. And Ward. All Game. Do It Or Don't Play Ranked. :-)
