Hybridizing agent-based paradigm with evolutionary computation can enhance the field of metaheuristics in a significant way, giving to usually passive individuals autonomy and capabilities of perception and interaction with other ones, treating them as agents. In the paper as a follow-up to the previous research, an evolutionary multi-agent system (EMAS) is examined in difficult discrete benchmark problems. As a means for comparison, classical evolutionary algorithm (constructed along with
