Is this online or single player?

As the French, research masonry as your first tech and you'll definitely get the free wall. That will give you a small boost of confidence in the beginning.

And form armies of archers. A single archer is no archer against an offensive army.

Yes it is. It isn't, however, any help ;)

The English are also really good at stopping early rushes; I found that out the hard way.

Probably good civs stopping rush are England, for the loyalty; French, fast access to wall; Greek, Hops defending since the beginning; German, has veteran warriors to fight back.

Aztecs, too. The fact that they heal immediately after fights means one army can take on waves and never be whittled down.
