The rest of 2011 and the first half of 2012 saw YF assist in reclaiming more systems for the coalition, like during the the battle for H6-CX8.

YF defensive gangs were now roaming the Southern pipe up to D-GTMI, keeping systems safe and allowing null-sec civilization to thrive. A second contingent operated from the Great Wildlands, where a strong NRDS presence kept hostiles at bay during those days.
The second half of 2012 saw YF accept an offer to relocate to the other side of Providence and take up residence in the JEIV-E pocket and its adjacent pipe system, XHQ-7V. It was here that YF truly settled and grew into the alliance it is today…
