Is to lose to better players, and pick-up on why they beat you.
The more you minimize mistakes that you catch yourself doing, the more you end up consistently playing to your best potential.
Also, don't call mid/top in ranked if you have a 10% win rate at it, and force that one guy who's unusually good at a character to be forced to an inferior role.
Also, play singed.
