In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JALiA9y-L90&feature=youtu.be&t=585, it seems that he said "nice thanks chat". In this context, the word "chat" means "audience"? Did he thanked for the audience? Maybe I heared wrong. I found some examples of "thanks for the chat"(https://ludwig.guru/s/thanks+for+the+chat), but I want to clarify it.

  • My son just explained Twitch & Hearthstone to me, and he confirms that the answer by Honor is the more accurate one, i.e. "chat" refers to the "audience" using the chat panel, and in particular he's being sarcastic by saying thanks for a suggestion on chat that would actually have been a bad move. – Chappo Says SE Dudded Monica Dec 15 '18 at 6:02
  • Saitouena, you can always change your choice of "accepted answer" if you think a later answer is better. – Chappo Says SE Dudded Monica Dec 15 '18 at 6:04
  • @Saitouena - Chappo is wearing the "Explorer" hat - It is obtained by: "Post an accepted answer that receives no other votes for 12 hours". – Rob Dec 15 '18 at 12:36

If you move the timestamp back a couple seconds, the player reads a suggestion from his chat room out loud out:

"You can always Innervate."

I'll avoid going into the details of Hearthstone, but he found it to be a funny suggestion. In response he says, sarcastically,

"Nice. Thanks, chat."

In this situation, "chat" refers to the audience communicating with each other and the streamer in the chat room that often goes along with livestreams on sites like Twitch or Youtube. He is sarcastically thanking those in his chat room who suggested he use Innervate.
