This is a minor issue which doesn't actually personally bother me, other than having Google Search Console occasionally reporting it to me as an error.

The e-mail from Google about it:
Search Console has identified that your site is affected by 6 Events issues:

We recommend that you fix these issues when possible to enable the best experience and coverage in Google Search.
The example affected URL which Google indicated:

And their reference page for the Event schema:

I can see that the schema in the page source for that event is indeed missing the "location" field, as well as the list of lesser Warning fields. As a side note, as per my related feature request, you can see the user who created that event specified a location which is a virtual one indicating a game server, and so the map isn't really appropriate there.

Look like we need only include schema data when event has location filled. Also the map look wrong yet.
