the lack of a fix from valve was met with criticism on counter-strike: source multiplayer servers and users expected valve to release a patch to patch the game. however, valve chose to release the free half-life 2: episode one in early november 2003, explaining that the game was the result of a "continuum" of valve's work and that the source code leak did not occur until after the release of episode one.   according to valve designer robin walker, valve learned of the crack of its network through a phone call.
a public beta was announced for half-life 2: episode one on november 7, 2003. the beta period was planned to be "no more than a few weeks". "with episode one, we're really just saying, 'look, we're putting half-life 2 out, let's get crack users out of the game and get it really good for a bigger launch.'"  however, valve's apparent failure to patch the source code leak in time had a negative impact on the opening day of the beta period, with certain players reporting server errors. valve became concerned that the beta period would not be successful, resulting in it being extended. as of early november 2003, only 18,000 copies of the episode one beta were shipped.
