I have been having serious trouble lately. When I started playing I would win at least one out of four games. I've probably lost about twelve games in a row now. I woud really appreciate any feedback you guys can give me, this is getting very frustrating and I want to know how to improve my game.
I know my main problem is that I don't know which units to use for countering and I have no idea how to improvise with my strategy to counter certain civilizations because I do not know what their weaknesses are.
Again, any help or advice that will help me acquire victory is greatly appreciated.
I'll check it out today and tell you whats going on :)

I haven't seen the rec but I'll give you a bit of help in civs weaknesses:
Spain will pobobly FF so attack and contain early.
British: Mannor boom so again attack early.
French: Rush or FF, scout and if yuo see thems hipping 700 gold second they will FF so attack straight away. if they rush beet back their rush and counter attack.
Ports: They will FF so attack early with a high seige army, run from minute men then come back and kill them when they are 1hp. Kill villagers and houses first then tc.
Dutch: Attack early and stop them FFinf or getting banks up.
Russian: They will strelet rush probobly so make cav to hold them off. They are weak if their rush fails.
Germany: Attack hard and fast, they have a slow age up.
Ottomans: Surrvive their rush and outboom them. They are weak late game.
I don't have time to write about the other civs, I may have missed something as well. Anyone else-feel free to correct me if I'm worng.

Some things i noticed that led up to you losing the game:
-You didn't scout the center of the map untill ~7 minutes! in an FF be sure you know what your opponent is doing, as you will be playing defence for the first 7 minutes or so.
-Diversify your units: At the start of your defence against the aztec, all you had were wakinas, which were eaten by the yotes.
-Use all your units: When the aztec player sent native treaties, the melee cav units fought your wakinas while your RR attacked villagers. Micro more effectively!
-Use your resources as they come to you, you had a large stockpile at the time.
-Train axe and RR locally, you didn't build a stable untill late in the game
-save your WC more often, and take map control when you have the military advantage, instead of simply attacking his base.
-Continue to scout, you could have pushed him when you had a blob of wakinas inyour base to finish the game in your favor.
-Continue making villagers and build a firepit a bit earlier. you had lots of TC idle time.
-You lost the game because you didn't make any bow riders or Rifle Riders to protect your wakinas. One unit armies will not win you the game!
